A selection of 158 homeowner reviews:
“It was really nice to have a good customer service rep as well as a good electrician. I have to be honest and say that with all of the contracting companies I've ever worked with, this was the best experience I've ever had. Communication skills were top-notch, and the quality of work was excellent.”
“I love Walter Electric. They came out, gave an estimate, came back, and did a great job. I would highly recommend—A+.”
“I was so impressed with the follow-up and follow-through. The representative kept me informed every step of the way and made sure I did what I needed to do—great company.”
“I had a drop ceiling and fluorescent lighting removed and recessed lighting and pole lamps installed in my kitchen. In addition, I had three outside lighting fixtures replaced. I was extremely pleased with the quality of work—A.”

“The work I needed done, was done properly and in a timely fashion. The technician was prompt and very polite. He also took the time to explain to me what he was doing.”
“Walter Electric replaced a lamppost in our front yard. They needed to use concrete. They were professional and careful—did not even harm the flowers around the lamppost. It stands straight and lights up—just what we wanted! They showed up on time and did the job well. Very personable. An overall pleasant experience. I would call them back again!”
“We are very pleased with the work. The electrician Bill Dean showed up on time, and had a very clean work area and was a pleasure to talk to. We will gladly use Walter Electric again.”
“I was quite nervous in contacting any electrician in my area, since living in this house for 12 years, it has numerous issues (house is approx'ly 52 years), and other electricians I have had in the past were inept. After doing some research, I decided to contact Walter Electricians. I was not disappointed. The electrician assigned to my house was very experienced, patient! And very cordial, and very professional. I hopefully, in the near future, would like to have Walter Electricians assist with more electrical work with this house, and would like to have the same electrician, though he may need assistance with what else I require to be done.”
“The electrician came to replace 2 old outdoor motion lights. While here, he also advised us as to the different ways that an electrical receptacle could be incorporated into our lamppost light. He was very pleasant. We enjoyed talking with him.”
“They replaced the internal parts of our 4-tube fluorescent light.”
“Work completed before I could get to my rental; this was GREAT!!!!!!”

“They did a great job. Very prompt.”

“Very easy company to work with great people!”
“Very knowledgeable.”
“I had a wonderful experience with them. They came on time, told me what it was going to cost, did it, and that's what it cost. They did everything how they said they'd do it, when they said they would do it, and I can't ask for anything more than that. They fixed my outside light because in my neighborhood, it automatically goes on.”
“I'm a real estate agent, and I was selling a house that had electrical switch problems. According to the contract, the repairs had to be done by a licensed technician, so I hired them to come in and correct the switches. They have a flat fee for coming, and I assume that's pretty much the same for all service people. When they add time, they add it in 15-minute increments. The fella that came out took care of it right away and could have billed me for 15 more minutes but didn't. I'd give them an A+.”
“He was very knowledgeable and friendly. They were installing an electrical outlet.”
“They were fine, and they did their work fine.”
“They just got on with the job and got it done. They installed our garbage disposal.”
“They put up a light fixture for me and removed a connection into the electric box. The service technician was very knowledgeable and nice, and he asked if he could quote me for anything else I needed to get done. It ended up being a same-day service call because I was moving out of the area. The company I had originally hired to do the work couldn't do it, so it was a last-minute kind of thing. I'd rate them an A.”
“They switched a light switch pull cord out in the basement. They're good. We had to call three electricians to get someone to come out, and they were the ones who actually returned our calls and came out. ”
“Basically, they followed up on a home inspection when we were selling our house. They were prompt and worked efficiently. He explained what he was doing, and he did what he said he would do. I chose them because they were local. I give them an A.”
“They rewired my electrical box, which was good all the way around. I was satisfied. I chose them because they were able to come after hours, so that was good.”
“We had a great experience with them. They did what they were supposed to do, were professional, acted professional, and did the work. I was happy and haven't had any complaints about it. My husband found out about it. I would rate them an A. ”
“I had some appliance work done, and they were prompt. They came out when they said they would, and that worked out really well for me. It was chilly, and they were working on the electrical capacity for my furnace. They came out and took care of the problem, and I was quite satisfied. Based on my experience, I'd grade him an A.”
“I had lost electrical power in two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a couple of receptacles. A friend told me about them. I liked it because they came out and fixed it. Another company came in who charged me for something, but they couldn't do it and still wanted to get paid. I'd give Walter Electric an A because they fixed all my problems.”
“Everything was good, so all thumbs up.”
“They were taking a look at some circuits that didn't respond when I tried to plug in some appliances. The gentleman was very thorough, did a lot of testing, and found the root of the problem very quickly. They get an A. ”
“It was very positive. He changed an electric socket so I could hook up a new stove. He came when he said he was going to come, was on time, and was pleasant enough. He was very helpful, and he even went beyond what he had to do and did a little something extra.”
“Our son had a house fire, and we had Walter Electric do the electrical work. We were dealing with them long distance, from out of state, and they were able to help us. They're an A. ”
“They replaced a plug that melted. His professionalism was nice, and his mannerisms were really good. He wasn't ill mannered in any way.”
“They installed a timer, they were professional, and the guy was really nice. We chose them because they could come out the quickest. They're an A company. ”
“They came, checked the thermostat, and knew what they were doing. ”
“They checked out the system because I called three people and they were the only ones who could come out. I'd give them an A.”
“They were fast and efficient, and they got the job done in good time. They installed track lighting. I sent them an email, and they got back to me pretty quick. They'd definitely be an A. ”
